    FWIW, I asked my brother (a career military physician who would have been assigned to work on our military's chemical weapons program if he hadn't gotten into med school) what he thought about this and he said "I'm not at all by the experiments and techniques, especially back then". I guess all any of us can do is speculate. However, if we accept the fact that our adversaries are/were capable of this type of barbarity, I don't think it takes a great leap of faith to believe that we are/were capable of it, since I believe that all societies are capable of the same levels of virtue and depravity.

    Years ago, a few people considered incapable of living independently that spent decades in mental institutions from the 30s to 60s told me stories of all sorts of abuse, including involuntary sterilization. One of them I still remember well. She was a bit slow, but far from I would consider mentally retarded.
